Thanks everyone for your comments and emails on my last post. It occurred to me later that perhaps that wasn't the best title for a post in which I announce my impending divorce. Really, I am doing fine. Phoebe's comment (wish I could figure out how to link to a comment) involving the "frogging a project that just isn't working at all" metaphor really is spot on. I've always been one to stick with things even when it's clear something's not right (everyone together, now ... "Simple Knitted Bodice
!"). I have learned the hard way, though, that some things that are broken cannot be fixed. And Tricia's comment as well was exactly right; once the first big hard step was taken, the subsequent steps have not been nearly as hard.
I am trying to respond personally to everyone's comments ... if you haven't heard from me, it's likely because you left your comment recently, or I can't find an email address for you. I am so grateful for your warm thoughts and support!
Meanwhile, I am Woefully Late in sending a sock to a friend. It was supposed to be with her last week, and I have not finished it. The Sox Boycott of 2007 didn't help, but frankly, I've also had more than my share of sock knitting problems with this project. Gauge issues. Bad yarn-pattern combo. And then another
bad yarn-pattern combo. And now, we might be back to gauge problems. Or at least size problems. Sigh.
So, naturally, I want to work on anything else. But knitting my lovely red cables when someone is waiting induces much knitterly guilt. Maybe the procrastination doesn't count if I'm crocheting?
